Meatless Monday-Quinoa Tabbouleh

Even though it has finally turned fall in LA, for some reason I was craving a light, summery meal over the weekend.  So, I went with a fresh tabbouleh recipe.  But instead of using bulgur wheat, I substituted quinoa.  Follow the recipe below for a great, light summery recipe when you need one!

1 Cup Quinoa

1 Large English cucumber

1 Pint Cherry Tomatoes

2/3 Cup Flat-Leaf Parsley, chopped

1/2 Cup Mint, chopped
